Taylor Wants Lawmakers Account For Default In Duty

By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, January 25 (LINA) -Lawmakers must hold themselves accountable for defaulting on some of their constitutional responsibilities, Bong County Senator Jewel Howard Taylor has said.

She also holds the electorate responsible for electing people who lack the capacity to live up to the task of providing adequate representation for their constituents.

Senator Taylor told ‘Prime Live’, a local Talk Show aired on Prime FM 105.5 Monday, that although the legislature is making gains, it continues to renege on providing oversight.

“I wonder why some members of the legislature claim that the government has failed and think that they have won. If the government fails we all fail because the legislature is one of the three branches of government,” she noted.

In response to a question, Senator Taylor pointed out that the ills in society can only be corrected when Liberians begin to elect people who have the capacity to deliver to citizens’ expectation.

“Election in Africa is about hearts and not heads; sometimes people will vote for somebody only because they love or like them,” she added.

The Bong County Senator then challenged the media to help citizens understand the critical role they are expected to play in the 2017 General and Presidential Elections.
